"I was hesitant to order a bowl because I've never bought art online before, but it arrived and is more beautiful than in the photos! Holding it, feels like holding Mother Nature in my hands. I will cherish it, Zach."
"Zach's process is extremely rare. He does it all—there are no middle men. From selecting the tree to harvesting it to painstakingly hauling it out of the forest and turning it into a work of art... it's a one man show. And the results speak for themselves."
Each wood art piece I create is one-of-a-kind.
Hand-salvaged from an ancient tree here in Alaska's Tongass National Forest.
If a piece speaks to you, follow your gut and grab it while you can. You don't want to miss your chance to get your special piece of ancient forest—there are no duplicates!

"I wanted to give my niece a wedding gift that stood out—something she couldn't get anywhere. I wanted it to be one of those pieces that will stay in the family, that will be handed down. And it has that story that gets passed on."

When Will I Get My Wood Art Piece(s)?
I ship all wood art pieces within 2-3 days of placing an order, unless the order contains a custom inscription—in which case you can expect it to ship within 5 days.
Due to the nature of one-of-a-kind art, quantities are extremely limited. I strongly recommend ordering as soon as possible to guarantee you get your desired piece.
What Is Your Refund Policy?
I understand that purchasing one-of-a-kind art online is a big decision, and I want you to feel confident with your purchase.
If you don't immediately see something in my current collection that screams, "that's the one!!!!," OR you have questions about a particular piece, send me a message and I'll help you out.
I'm not happy unless you're thrilled with your purchase. I figure each piece took hundreds of years to get to where it is today—it ought to find a happy home, right? 😀
If, for any reason, you aren't in love with your purchase; you can contact me to arrange the return of your wood art piece(s).
Do You Cut Living Trees?
All of the old-growth wood I use is hand-salvaged from Alaska's Tongass National Forest with special use permits obtained from the USFS.
In fact, I am proud to say that my wood art business uses 100% sustainable forestry practices.
I carefully harvest & remove select portions of dead, salvaged trees, leaving the rest of the forest ecosystem to continue thriving!
When you purchase a wood art piece from me, it's a double win: You get a beautiful piece of ancient forest to treasure for years and years...
AND you're supporting a renaissance of artists and highly skilled craftspeople forging their livelihoods from a small-scale, sustainable forestry industry here in SE Alaska.
Beautiful, well-made product. Great communications, packaged well, and quickly shipped. Thank You! MW
The red alder bowl i recieved from Zach is beautiful and functional and an exceptional gift.
Absolutely gorgeous and fits perfectly in the area I purchased it for. The finish of the plate is ultra smooth and it is a very light piece. I so appreciate Zach LaPerrier's talents and am so glad to have it in our home.
Thanks Zach for the beautiful red alder bowl I just received from you. It is beyond beautiful and I can't wait to use it. I so very much appreciate the workmanship that has gone into this bowl and love reading your blogs to learn more about your processes and bowls. This won't be my last bowl I order. Thanks.
Quality work thank you
Thank you so much for the bowl. Excellent craftsmanship.
I love my through knot bowl. Zach your working is amazing!
Purchased this bowl for my husband and I as a late wedding present to ourselves. It is absolutely beautiful! When we are not using it in the kitchen (rarely - I have used it to cook.serve with every day since we bought it) I just leave it out around the house. We will definitely be purchasing more. Thank you Zach!
